  • home made belt linisher plans

    I recently bought a nice linishing machine and was impressed with the simplicity of the design. So much so, that I would like to make another with a different size of belt. Does anyone here have drawings plans or could steer me in the right direction for plans to make one.I am particularly interested in the wheels and the tracking design and the belt tensioning,as the rest is pretty standard anyone made one I would like to see it please Alistair

        J.M. Weaver Sander

        Tin,
        I live 19 miles from where this sander was/is made and had never heard of it.

        I am going to check into the sander to see if they are still made in Chickasha, Okla.
        Looks like something I might be interested in.

        Thanks.
        Larry

            Tin,
            Now you've got my curiosity up and I have to investigate the sander.
            There is a Jack M. Weaver with that address and phone number still listed in the phonebook.
            I am currently working in Oklahoma City and will not be home until Thursday, but I will call the telephone number tomorrow (Holidays you know) and see if J.M. Weaver still resides there. I am hoping he does.

            Thanks.
            Larry

              Not old

              Gator:
              was noticed the base is speced for MDF I think that is a relativly modern material. And if the address and number match. Let us know what you find out.

                Take a look at the Beaumont KMG. I've been gathering bits to build one somewhat based on that design with an extra stone spindle (or 2). Click on the links for the platen design and others to see different configs. The platen style is most similar to my plans...

                  Bad dog that's a fantastic site well done plenty to get ideas from there .Can anytone tell me if the belts can be shortened I have a belt 2" by about twelve feet long .I have a linisher which takes about a ten foot belt but these belts I got are very good but about sixteen inches too long.They are made in germany and are good quality belts but I need to shorten them for my belt sander linisher .They are joined by a small strip of sticky clear plastic webbing very short can this be heated and redone otherwise I will try to make a piece of webbing and use contact adhesive regards Alistair

                      That explains it!!

                      again was not trying to be a wise guy. I guess you need to decide what approach is right for you. I know the home shop guy usualy has to be frugal. I also know from experience thay the design& engieering phase of a project can eat up lots of time. Even when you have a set of good plans that you are trying to modify. I worked in R&D /product development for a yacht builder it is rewarding but a lot of work. So I guess you need to decide if you want to pay the price for someone elses engineering work or the time to figure it out yourself.

                      Well the wife is serving up fish and "Chips" so need to go.

                        Linisher plans (for $)

                        I don't know if the plans are worth the $50.00. Maybe the drawing is helpful.

                            Oh, I don't know. This set of plans doesn't look that much "simpler" than the Beaumont KMG mentioned earlier that does cost around $1000. And $50 doesn't seem all that much to pay for pages of plans that someone has presumably sweated a lot of work into. LMS is a good outfit, they're not trying to rip anyone off.

                            After all, some folks would just design their own machine, some would beg for free information or copy others, some would like a well thought out design that they could execute, and some just want to a kit or finished machine.

                            If'n you were to ask me, I'd say the Beaumont guys are closer to the rip off, but I also know how much work it would be to build one of those machines and actually make a living selling them.

                            One of these would sure be easy to build too:

                              Alistair, it appears to be basically an simple, open version of the Wilton Platen Grinder. Knife makers love them. Think about it, how many places have the time AND capability to build what they need? When you start figuring shop time at $50+, suddenly $1300 doesn't seem like a whole lot, especially when you can write off capital equipment.

                              BTW, The book $50 Knife shop has a bunch of designs for belt grinders, along with what is one of the smallest forges I've ever seen - uses a hole bored into a firebrick.
